No one was injured during a Sunday fire in South Williamsport, but two residents and an unnamed number of pets now are homeless.
The blaze, which destroyed the interior of a three-floor home at 309 Sidney St., began at about 11 a.m.
While visible flames were quenched at about 11:30 a.m, fire officials remained on the scene until about 1 p.m., cleaning up debris and continuing their investigation.
Fire officials and neighbors discuss the damaged home with concerned citizens. Officials have yet to determine the cause of the blaze but admitted there was no evidence of suspicious activity so far.
Fire investigators called the structure "unlivable" after the blaze.
According to Al Cole, of the South Williamsport Bureau of Fire Prevention, the cause of the fire still is under investigation, and damage estimates have yet to be made.
However, he said he is "unsure we're even dealing with anything suspicious" at this time.
Firefighters safely removed both residents and their pets.
Officials did not know if the two residents had friends or family with whom they could reside. According to Judy Berfield, assistant chief fire inspector, the American Red Cross has been notified of the fire and is offering assistance to the displaced pair.
At the scene, the First Ward Fire Department was assisted by South Williamsport police and firefighters from Nisbet, DuBoistown and Montgomery.
